@Bourdon8: Historic = Having importance in or influence on history. Sounds to me you define "historic" as meaning "old." The Fisk Opus 87 is modeled after the instruments of Gottfried Silbermann. The casework most closely resembles that of Silbermann's 1721 instrument in the Georgenkirche in Rötha. Although it is not old, it seems to fit the definition of historic.

Where did "Bourdon8" comment to which you are replying, jfk1961. It seems that you have drug a conversation from elsewhere onto OrganLive's desk! Not nice - or appropriate.

By: jfk1961 on Apr, 04 2016

@MusicDonor2014: UNTRUE! My comment was nice, appropriate and VERY informative! Bourdon8 canceled his/her OrganLive account a long time ago. And I’m guessing, when you delete your account, all your comments are deleted also. However, this commenter made very harsh, unjustified and completely ignorant comments. My comment just spells out the facts about this wonderful FISK!

Can anyone tell me what was "Not nice - or appropriate" about my original Aug, 13 2013 comment?

By: TrichterRegal on Apr, 19 2016

I see nothing wrong. You just stated the facts as to why this organ should be considered Historic. Nothing "Not Nice," Nothing "Inappropriate." Thanks for the info JFK, I did not know. However, this conversation is misplaced. It should be under the "Blanche Anderson Moore Hall, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan," TRACK!

Superbly played, and an excellent atmospheric recording of a lovely clunky organ. It lives!

Do we hear passing trucks during the third piece? what a shame recording flawless except for that.
